Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I sign up my store to be included in ShopRipon.com?

Contact i.t.Interactive at sales@shopripon.com or call us at 920-288-2167.

2. What type of information can I update on my shopripon.com web site?

You can update virtually all information on the site with the exception of navigation images and the web site format. You can update the news items, faqs, contact us, terms, security, privacy, product categories, product descriptions, product images, pricing, shipping options, product options, customer information, newsletters, discount information, product review and store configuration options. Our administrative pages provide you with easy to use, point and click web pages that will update your web site. Updates occur real time! No waiting for someone else to update your web site. You can update your web site any time you want or need to!

3. How do I process orders from my web site?

When a customer submits an order, you will receive an email message notifying you of the order. You will then use your administrative site to review the order, contact the customer with questions, ship the order, invoice your order, finalize the order or cancel the order. Your customer is notified of each step along the way. The web site will send email messages notifying the customer of the order status and allow them to track the order status.

4. Do I need to accept credit cards on-line to accept orders?

Not necessarily. By setting your own payment options, you can process order payments via credit card, check or in person. You can also set up an account with PayPal.com or 2CheckOut.com. These services will allow you to accept credit card payments without the expense of establishing a merchant account. These services will charge you a transaction fee, but it is typically less than a credit card merchant account. If you do accept credit cards, you will need to contact your credit card company to set up a merchant account. The merchant account will allow you to accept credit card charges on-line. Once you are set up, contact us at support@shopripon.com and we will help set up the web site to process the credit cards.

If you currently accept credit cards and do not want the expense of a merchant account or PayPal/2CheckOut, you do have another option. Accept credit cards on-line. When you receive an order, simply process the card through your retail store's charge card machine. Record the approval number, issue a receipt to the customer and process the order. When the volume dictates on-line validation and credit processing, then pursue automatic processing through a merchant account.

5. What if I don't want to sell on-line? I only want to advertise my products.

No problem. The web site is set up for you to do just that! Go into your administrative site and set up the web site to run in "Catalog Only" mode. This option essentially disables the shopping cart features on the web site. Customers will still be able to browse your products, but they will not be given the opportunity to purchase products on-line. Once you are ready to accept orders on-line, just turn off the "Catalog Only" mode and the shopping cart is ready to go.
